Hindu Charities for America (HC4A): The Mission
At Hindu Charities for America, we follow our motto of “Serve Where You Live” and believe in the value of Seva, one of the foundational principles of Hindu Sanatan Dharma.
Our mission is clear: to bridge income disparities through education. And we have been doing it successfully for years.
Last year, with your support, we raised over $120,000 that enabled us to provide more than 120 scholarships that helped deserving students and heads of households find better-paid employment.
These scholarships even funded a program with the African American Youth Harvest Foundation to provide certification courses to hard-working but underserved youth.
The 2023 Poverty Rate in Texas
Did you know that according to the latest Census Bureau data for 2022, a shocking 14% of Texas’s population, which is approximately 4.2 million people, is living in poverty? This percentage is higher than the national average of 11.6%. This means that 4.2 million Texans are struggling to make ends meet, often working multiple low-wage jobs just to survive.
How Education Can Change Lives
In the middle of this harsh reality of poverty, there is some good news – education can be the solution we have been looking for. Education can change the lives of bright and dedicated students and family heads stuck in such difficult situations. This is the reason why we help people get educated and find better jobs to create a better future by providing scholarships and financial help for education.
So, this year, HC4A is setting the bar even higher to help with this problem. We are aiming to raise more funds with your help so that we can award more scholarships to students in high-demand fields like healthcare, technology, and business. These scholarships will go to the academically gifted, deserving students who are facing homelessness or coming from low-income families
